G  D  Em  C

G                                       C
When was it that you lost your youth or traded
G                                       C
It for something more for them to use so jaded
Em
Why is it that you never said
D
I love you more than just a friend
C
I pray this gridlock never ends
D
And when we get there just depends

G                                 C
I found out recently that you are leaving
G                                 C
For good I hope I softly tell my ceiling
Em
It's better now to be alive
D
Sleeping is my 9 to 5
C              
I'm having nightmares all the time
D
Of running out of words that rhyme


G                               D
Everything that you could never say
                   Em
Would never matter anyway
                        C                         G
I took a hammer and two nails to my eardrums long ago
G                               D
Before that steak knife took my eyes
                   Em
I looked up to the sky
                           D
For the last thing I would ever see
                      G
For the last time I'd cry


G  D  Em  C


G                                      C
When was it that you sold your life or wasted
G                                        C
Every bite of that small slice you never tasted
Em
I guess I should be one to talk
D
There's nights that I can't even walk
C
There's days I couldn't give a fuck
D
And in between is where I'm stuck

G                                 C
From blocks away I heard somebody screaming
G                                            C
That small child inside of you that you left bleeding
Em
You stabbed him up not once but twice
D
Cubicles will now suffice
C
Some say it's the roll of the dice
D
I think they're wrong I know I'm right


G                                D
Every breath that I could barely breathe
                             Em                        
Could barely make it past my teeth
                           C                            G
I took a blowtorch to both of my lungs a long long time ago
G                       D
Every step that I could take
                            Em
Each one more difficult to make
                      C                              G
Mr. Chainsaw came and took my legs a long, long time ago
